“This fake App has been developed by ‘ANGroup’, not us!”
Titled ‘Private Finance’, the app is quite convincing and has even used the ANZ logo to try and fool potential victims.
People are being urged NOT to install the app.
If you have accidentally already downloaded it, ANZ Australia is urging customers to send them a private message so that they can assist.
